Watching your child walk through difficult times can be one of the hardest aspects of parenting. Melanie Shankle, from San Antonio, Texas, and host of The Big Boo podcast, vulnerably shares her story of walking her teenage daughter through a tormenting Sophomore year in high school. As a parent, Melanie gently reminds us to keep faith when God delays answering our prayers for our child's struggle, and she encourages us to keep believing He alone knows what your child needs, as He alone sees the whole, big picture. IN THIS EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN:
You can't prepare your child for the real world if you are always protecting them from the real world. Walking through hard times is the main way God wants your child to taste and see that He is good. Our kids will model what we show them more than what we say.
